It is an immense privilege to be working with the board of trustees to oversee the strategic development of an organisation that is making such a difference to the lives of victims and their families.

The charity already provides excellent support and our job now is to develop services and resources, address and challenge the root causes of domestic abuse and raise awareness of the help that is available.
